WCC Tournament 2012, Saint Mary's Vs. Gonzaga: Championship Game Time, TV Schedule, Streaming Info And More

The West Coast Conference gets the spotlight to itself Monday evening before the major conference tournaments begin on Tuesday. It is fitting that the WCC championship game features one of the best rivalries in college basketball as the Saint Mary's Gaels face the Gonzaga Bulldogs. This marks the twelfth meeting of the two schools over the last four years, and the fourth straight conference championship matchup between the two.

Saint Mary's ended Gonzaga's run of regular season conference championships this season, and will look to add the postseason title as well. The Gaels will likely be without Stephen Holt as he continues recovering from a knee injury. Holt was in uniform and warmed up for the semifinal game against San Francisco, but did not play. Saint Mary's is a likely entrant in the NCAA tournament even with a loss on Monday, and it makes sense to rest up Holt for another week and a half before the tournament gets going.
